About this project

Hello everyone, my name is Ian Walker and I am the founder of Obsidian Studios, and writer and creator of my newest project, The Swaggernauts.

The Swaggernauts is a comedy adventure comic book project following two aliens that are marooned on Earth after an accident landed them here. J.J. and Kristie Swagg are the Swaggernauts. Everything that Earth knows as cool from fashion to music to art to current pop culture, is something that the Swaggernauts are responsible for. They have visited Earth multiple times since the dawn of man, and is considered a vacation planet on their homeworld. 

Along the way during their quest to get home, J.J. and Kristie meet new and interesting people and even find out that there may be some of their kind still on our planet that have made Earth their home unbeknownst to humankind. This comic covers adventure and many pop culture references, and homages to things we are familiar with today.

This project is currently in production right now and at it's early stages of drafting, and I have big big plans for this book. But right now, I simply want to get the images out there, and let people know that 'we are not alone', and that the Swaggernauts have landed here on Earth. The best way to do that is to introduce them to you. I want to do 6 color prints for the comic conventions I will be attending in 2013 to help me get the word out about the Swaggernauts. There are some great rewards here to thank you for your support, and for spreading the word about it. These range in the form of the prints themselves, original artwork, posters, and t-shirts. This is a dream to get this project off the ground so I would really appreciate any and all help to get this to WonderCon in March and introduce the Swaggernauts to the world!

Risks and challenges

This project is a labor of love, and will get done despite obsticles. I am hoping to have everything go as smoothly as possible. I anticipate the only troubles coming from printing and shipping. So I will make it my priority to find quality and professional printers, and be on top of getting everything sent out in the mail in a timely manner as promised to you all.
